Born in Los Angeles, Dr. Telles grew up in LA until the age of 6 where he moved with his family to Huntington Beach, CA in 1986. Throughout his high school years at Edison High, he excelled in the mathematics and sciences due to the support of his family whom were in the sciences. He then graduated from Edison High school as a distinguished scholar. Throughout his young years, Dr. Telles enjoyed working with his hands as he built r/c model planes and flew them in his past time. In addition, he participated in the tennis team in high school and played golf for leisure.
Dr. Telles then went to the University of Southern California as a 3rd generation of his family to attend. He obtained his B.A. in Biological Sciences and a minor in web development. Then he went on to attend New York University where he graduated as member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon which is reserved to the highest 10% of the graduating class.
In 2006 he completed his NYU dental training and went on to a general practice residency where he was involved with numerous complex hospital cases and completed rotations in medicine and anesthesia at UCLA-Harbor Medical Center. During his GPR, Dr. Telles found his passion for oral surgery and decided to go to the University of Illinois at Chicago for an oral surgery internship under the direction of Michael Miloro.
Upon the completion of his oral surgery internship, he transitioned into his residency training at NYU-Woodhull Medical Center under the direction of Dr. Orrett Ogle. There he received extensive training in trauma, pathology, implantology, dento-alveolar, IV sedation and orthognathic surgery. During 2011 he attended the International Committee of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons meeting in Santiago, Chile where he presented a free paper on the Incidence of Oro-facial infection – a retrospective study. At the end of his residency training, he received the resident of the year award determined by both his colleagues and attending faculty.
After residency, Dr Telles worked one year as an associate in Sacramento with a large multi-office group called Sacramento Oral Surgery. Afterwards, Dr Telles decided to return to southern California to be close to family. Naturally, Dr. Telles and Dr. Marshall are working in a joint effort to provide the highest quality oral surgery. In addition to private practice, Dr Telles is dedicated to education and currently serves as a clinical professor at USC Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Dr. Telles holds the true value of patient care as an essential quality that all surgeons should understand and practice. It is his goal to provide caring, comfortable and compassionate surgery to all of his patients.
